. the quake was felt in neighboring mexico and el salvador, there was even a tsunami alert off the coast of el salvador. as for the victims, in one case an swire family was -- an entire family was killed. a couple and their six young children crushed from rocks and earth from a hill that slid into their home. aftershocks continue to rattle nerves there. the cleanup and the mourning is now underway. jon: yeah. that's a country that's not prepared to deal with that kind of thing. they just don't have the infrastructure. rick folbaum, thanks. jenna: the clock is ticking to stop the economy from going over that fiscal cliff we've been talking so much about. that cliff of massive tax hikes and across-the-board spending cuts. it's just one of the many economic challenges facing this country right now. this comes at a time that we're watching the markets as well. the dow dropping more than 300 points yesterday, it was the biggest drop of the year for the markets. there's a look realtime today. you see not quite as bad. the markets trading lower, still below 13,000 which is a critical level that a lot
. that's dead even. independents are dead even. it is one of these whose mott el is right. more seniors vote than young people the romney team wins. the romney message is up beat. the obama message is kind of negative. don't let these bad guys come in office again. >>> with regard to these polls they weren't all in lock step rather in 2008. in an election like this even if it is this tight, ed, you are doing polling out there say you are off by one or two points. as a pollster you might say hey we came close to nailing it. but not this time. if the polls are off by a point or two it could be, i don't want to use the word land slide but it could be a dominating victory for one side or the other. >> this whole election is decided by less than a million votes. obviously in these 6 or 7 states none of them are for sure. they could tip either way which could make one side or the other winning a land slide or a big margin at this point in time. the president could not do as well as he did four years ago. smiens is when united half of them saying they don't want you any more you are in trouble
